Orhi from Abodi

The slopes of the Pyrenees are home to sheep, cows, goats and horses, all equipped with a bell of appropriate size for the animal, so the hills are often alive with quite a jangling sound. The animals must be rugged to cope with the conditions, but the horses seemed in beautiful condition, glossy like chestnuts, and really stockily built. The hill in the background is Orhi, itself mightily rugged, and too terrifiying for me to climb, though parties including grandparents and toddlers seem to be quite happy to struggle up to the narrow top along with John. To compensate my lack of a summit we climbed a smaller hill on the Sierra de Abodi, a pleasant rounded top covered in mares and foals, from which this view is taken.
